Julie Andrews: Chin In My Hands pt. 3 | Journey from Princess to Queen (1957-2001)
Falling in love is not the only adventure worthy of a young woman.
When I say that, what I mean is “Keep trying. Don’t give up on the fight”
Staying strong doesn’t mean not asking for help, keeping yourself from crying, acting as though you’re fine, etc. It isn’t weak to admit you aren’t ok, to fall apart, to need a day in bed, having to stay home from class to figure your mind out, etc.
You are strong for taking care of yourself, feeling your emotions, letting yourself fall apart, etc
Usually when people do that “you’re special” crap I tend to roll my eyes.
But when Mister Rogers said it…
That’s because Mister Rogers meant it.
Mister Rogers genuinely cared about everyone and that’s why he will forever be the best. All of my feels.
True fact: He was considered to be one of the hardest people to interview, because he would turn it around and ask questions about the interviewer with genuine interest. Asking about their children and spouses, their dreams of the future, etc.
